Tyler: Do you know what day it is, Little? It’s Thankful Thursday.
Little: I don’t feel like being thankful today. I’m too sleepy.
Tyler: Oh, no! We have such a good life with our cohabitors. You must be thankful for something.
Little: I’ll think about it later. Right now I’m going to take a nap.
Tyler: Aha! That’s something to be thankful for— a nap!
Little: But I take a nap every day. What’s the big deal?
Tyler: You’ve been living in this nice house for ten years, so maybe you’ve forgotten how dangerous life on the streets can be. A cat has to be vigilant every minute. That’s why I learned to sleep sitting up, so predators wouldn’t get me.
